This is a pilot-scale project, located in southern Korea, that is demonstrating the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from a 10 megawatt electric power plant flue gas slipstream, using a potassium carbonate-based solid sorbent. The project’s overall goal is to demonstrate the feasibility of dry solid sorbent capture while improving the economics (target: below US$40 per tonne of CO2 captured). The project will extend through most of 2017. There will be 180 days of continuous operation each year, with a capture rate of about 170 tonnes of CO2 per day at more than 95% CO2 purity.
Recognized by the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) at the 2015 CSLF Meeting in Abu Dhabi.
